Cash from President’s House to Court

Rs. 17.8 Million in cash that was found inside the President's House on the 9th of July, and later handed over to the Sri Lanka Police, was produced to the Fort Magistrate's Court as per a court order made on Thursday.

The Superintendent of Police in charge of the Colombo Central Crimes Investigation Division located in Slave Island, Colombo handed over the money to the Court.

Magistrate Thilina Gamage said there is reasonable suspicion as to why the OIC of the Fort Police failed to produce the money for three weeks.

The Magistrate also said that said the court was not aware of any special circumstances for the money originally given to the Fort Police, to be produced via a Special Police Unit from Slave Island.

Magistrate Thilina Gamage ordered the Inspector General of Police to immediately investigate the delay in producing the money, and submit a report to the court.

The Police Chief was ordered to appoint the Director of the Special Investigations Unit at the Police Headquarters for this purpose, and provide him with the necessary assistance.
